Where the laundromat now stands was the site of where my Uncle Jim Hayes’ and father Ed Keyes, Sr. had their grocery / delicatessen “Hayes and Keyes” from 1946 to 1965. It was a busy store for quite awhile until landlord and supermarket issues brought a close to another neighborhood enterprise. My childhood memories are filled with laughs, great neighbors and a strong work ethic that my father instilled in myself and brother Denis at an early age. The Kawas, Frizell, and McCorkel families were tremendous families who also were tenants in the same building
Remember McCorkel and Kawas well. I think before McCorkel it was the Ward’s
i beleive the 2nd floor is/was the Kawas residence.
Tony you are right. Great family…
Ed, a great memory to have, never knew about the grocery store, probably around same time Joe Hajjars dad had his grocery store on 14th and 8th, so you and Jimmy Hayes are cousins, never knew that either.
Those were great days for me Gerard. I practically grew up in the store, our house was 3 houses away on 8th Ave..Wish we had it now , probably many $$. All the best to you and the family !! Ed
Michael and John Karvounis lived in that building as well.
